Shakespeare in an Ottawa Park




What a good idea -- especially for shut-in agoraphobes like myself.
I love the theatre but I cannot stand being in a perfumed room with a horde of strangers.
This theatre experiment is out in the park!
Here are the details:

Bear & Co. announces it's Summer Shakespeare Tour of William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors.

Opening July 4th, 2013,  The Comedy of Errors will be directed by Anna Lewis, with music direction by Rachel Eugster. The tour will visit parks across Ottawa between  July 4th and August 4th.

A time of lawlessness and danger. A time of cowboys and frontier women. Bear & Co. brings you back to the wild west in Shakespeare's mad-cap mistaken identity play, The Comedy of Errors. When two sets of identical twins find themselves in the quiet town of Galveston, passion and mayhem are bound to ensue.

Galveston might not be big enough for the both of them.

Featuring:
Brie Barker, David Benedict Brown, Leslie Cserepy, Rachel Eugster, Michelle LeBlanc, Anna Lewis, Tim Oberholzer, Alexis Scott, Will Somers and David Whiteley.

Shows start at 7pm.
Pass-The-Hat ($15 suggested donation)
Bring your own blanket, or lawn chair. 

Here is the schedule.
